9780199244317: Events and Semantic Architecture

In this study of how syntax relates to meaning, Paul Pietroski defends the hyposthesis that combining expressions corresponds to predicate-conjunction and not function-application. Chapters cover a range of constructions involving causative and serial verbs, plural noun-phrases, and complementizer phrases. The book represents a lucid contribution to the field by a leader of the new generation of philosopher-linguists.

About the Author:

Paul M. Pietroski is Professor of Philosophy and Professor of Linguistics at the University of Maryland. He is the author of Causing Actions (O.U.P. 2000; paperback edition 2002) and many articles concerning the semantics of natural language.

Review:


"Conjunctivism is an attractive and interesting view--a solid understanding of it will surely be mandatory for anyone interested in the rigorous study of meaning in human languages. Pietroski addresses head on some of the really difficult issues."--Notre Dame Philosophical Review
